This film is adapted from Hunter S. Thompson's novel of the same name.

Author Hunter S. Thompson shaved Johnny Depp's head. They were in Thompson's kitchen, Depp refused to look in a mirror, and Thompson wore a miner's hard hat.

In the book, Hunter S. Thompson listens to "Sympathy For The Devil" by The Rolling Stones, but the rights to play it in the film were too expensive for the production budget.
